LIBERTY, Tenn. – Cannon County deputies discovered more than 100 marijuana plants and a moonshine still at a home on Monday evening.

After arriving to the home located on Big Hill Road, authorities discovered 124 marijuana plants and items used to grow the illegal drug, in addition to a working moonshine still.

Charges are pending against homeowners Edward and Joann Johnson.

Authorities said Edward Johnson has a previous arrest and conviction for manufacturing marijuana and is scheduled to be in court Tuesday for those charges.
